Lynn Swann to be Inducted into Bowling Hall Of Fame. Joins Jerome Bettis.

For Lynn Swann, this Hall is right down his alley

The former NFL star will be inducted into the Bowling Hall of Fame, in honor of his promotional work for the game. He joins fellow former Pittsburgh Steeler Jerome Bettis in the Celebrity Wing.

Eight years after being inducted at Canton, Lynn Swann is Hall of Fame-bound again.

Today at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Swann will be inducted into the Bowling Hall of Fame. Swann has done promotional work for the game and bowls with his family about twice a month.

"I'm just an all-right bowler," Swann says. "Never had a 300 game. I'm usually in the mid-to-upper 100s."

Swann is the third recipient to make the Hall's Celebrity Wing -- and surprisingly, not the first football player. Swann was preceded by fellow former Pittsburgh Steeler Jerome Bettis.

Swann has played host to the NFL Super Bowl Celebrity Bowling Classic for the last three years and served as a lane-side reporter for CBS' "Clash of the Champions" in 2008.
